- George's House
- Program Number
- Series Description
"Dance for Camera" was the earliest series created by the Dance Workshop, which was coordinated at the time by Nancy Mason. The series was broadcast in 1976. Carmen De Lavallade, a former dancer with Lester Horton, John Butler and others, recorded introductions for the shows. Some of the works were rebroadcast as part of the "Frames of Reference" series. Series release date: 1974
- Program Description
Dan Wagoner's choreography is performed by himself and seven female dancers in and around a small New Hampshire farmhouse. The work is meant to recall Wagoner's Appalachian roots. The women perform mostly sprightly movements, hanging from the windows of the house and running across the lawn and splashing at a nearby waterfall. One scene that takes place with several of the women in the bedroom shifting positions, is more somber and poignant. Wagoner performs a solo at a well.
